Country music entertainer Joe Paul Nichols will hold an album release party at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 24 at the Heart of Texas Country Music Museum located at 1701 South Bridge Street. There will be no admission charge for the event. Nichols’ new album, “Route 3 Gloryland” features both standards like “Crying In The Chapel,” “This World Is Not My Home,” “Just Over In Gloryland,” along with new country gospel songs including “Jesus Is The Same In California,” “The Miracle” and “An Evening Prayer.” Nichols began his professional career as part of the Cowtown Hoedown before joining the Big D Jamboree in Dallas. He formed his band, “The Five Pennies” and began touring throughout the southern United States. He has over 13 country albums to his credit and has most recently been recording several country gospel projects. “I love country gospel music,” Nichols said from his Jacksboro home. “My latest album is one of my favorites. I am getting great reviews from all over the state and look forward to my trip to Brady and seeing all of my friends there.” Nichols will also make a presentation to the Heart of Texas Country Music Museum by donating a suit and a pair of stage boots. “We are always pleased when Joe Paul visits Brady,” KNEL disk jockey Tracy Pitcox said. “He will co-host our Hillbilly Hits radio show on Friday night and then the album release party at the museum on Saturday morning.” For more information about the album release party or the Heart of Texas Country Music Museum, call (915) 597-1895.
